Newly opened Pokémon Center in Kyoto
The must-see quality of this Pokémon Center is the interior with strong imagery of the legendary Pokémon, Ho-Oh and Lugia. Inside of the store, such as the walls, are black instead of white like most other Pokémon Centers. The ambiance of traditional city of Kyoto is reflected in the store, you may feel more of Japanese essence in Pokémon Center in Kyoto than any other locations.

There is a lot of Pokemon merch on sale in Pokemon Center, on the 5th floor of Kyoto Tashimaya department store! They sell everything from plushies and keychains to snacks, so it can be hard to decide what to get. They also have a geisha-Pikachu, so this place is a must for Pokemon fans.
